This blog was thought up by a group of friends who met on another challenge blog that closed. We missed the challenges there and decided that it would be nice to challenge each other by collecting ideas and putting them all into a hat to draw one out each week as a challenge. Now Closed as a challenge blog but here for inspiration for now

Challenge 18-Sewing

Some lovely people joined us again last week and made amazing projects for our challenge--thank you and we hope you enjoyed the Time challenge.

This week's challenge is to lets us see some SEWING on your project somewhere. Maybe just a few stitches or a whole garment, an ATC, tag, card or whatever you like. Hope you have fun making something and add your project to show us by clicking on the frog at the bottom of the post and adding your link.

This week is also the last week to have a chance to win Janet's prize, do join in so that your name can go in the hat for Janet's random draw. It is open to all.

WARNING Just to say that our 4th challenge in August on August 23rd requires you to have a mousetrap similar to the one in the picture -well we are Mad Hatters you know :) We are hoping a lot of you will join us in this challenge to alter a mousetrap and you can start to think about it now as you have lots of time.

These are our projects for the sewing and if you click on the names below the pictures you can go to our blogs and see how we made them.  Florence and me must have been mind reading :)

Challenge 17-Time

Terrific to have 11  people join us last week in the Twinchies Challenge. Your entries were a real inspiration and we do love having you show us what you make of our challenges-hope you enjoyed making them.

This week the theme is Time and we all had that on our lists when we wrote them earlier this year, to go into the hat, when we had the idea for this blog. We did have well over 100 things put into the hat so still lots to go and we are already thinking up new things to go into the hat.

Hope you like the theme and will join in with us this week if you have TIME.  Would like to see how we made our pieces, then just click on our names under the samples. We do all love  a comment telling us what you think or just to say hello so don't be shy.lol

Janet is still saving names for her prize which will be drawn at the end of the month--the picture of the prize is in the side bar. If you link more than once to a different project for the theme then your name will be added again to Janet's hat.

Have fun and we hope to see what you make-scroll down and click on the frog to add your project.

Challenge 16-Twinchies

Lovely to have some of you join us last week for the Travel Postcard challenge. Lots of remarkable work as always and we do love seeing what everyone makes for the challenges and to visit your blogs.

Something a bit different for this week so you will be able to let your imagination stray to all sorts of places. Maybe just make a Twinchie on its own or add one or more to something else-whatever it is you create just make sure there is a visible Twinchie somewhere. A Twinchie is a 2x2 inch square decorated in any way you chose.

Janet is still collecting names for her July prize draw--to find details go to the last challenge here where you can see a picture of the prize and what you have to do to be in with a chance of winning.

To see more detail of what we made for the Twinchies and how we made them please click on our names under the samples. We love to have you visit and leave a comment if you have time

Challenge 15-A Travel Postcard

Here we are with another new month and some interesting challenges have come out of the hat again.

It is really lovely to have people join in with the challenges and come up with wonderful ideas and even better that you are enjoying making them with us. Thank you to all of you who joined us in the Summertime Challenge.

This week the challenge is to make a Travel Postcard. Let your imagination flow and make something that is what you think of as a travel postcard. I am sure that we will all have different ideas about where, when and how as we usually do or, who knows, maybe this time we will all think of the same thing. That's what makes it exciting.

Now for the July event---

This month Janet will be using Tando products on all of her projects for July at the 'Hatters' and she would like to give a Tando prize to someone.

This is the prize and all you have to do to be in with a chance to win is to join in one or more of the challenges in July. Every time you join in with a project your name will go into a hat at Janet's house and on Ist August when the last July Challenge finishes Janet's husband will draw out the lucky winner. The winner will be announced on August 2nd on the new challenge message.

Thank you Janet for this lovely gesture.

These are are what we have made if you want to see how we made them then click on the names under the pictures and go to our blogs we love to see your comments so do say hello if you have time
